Low carb meatballs and “spaghetti”

  Posted on   by   No comments

Experimented with zucchini noodles yesterday. I must say I liked it. I ended up adding too much sauce but that was my fault. :).

Zucchini noodles:

One large green zucchini
Salt

On a mandolin slice the zucchini into small spaghetti like strands. Put zucchini into a strainer and sprinkle with ~1 tsp salt (maybe a little more). Let sit for 20-30 mins. Rinse with water and use in your dish. I fried them for 1-2 minutes in a frying pan before adding the meatballs and sauce.

Low carb Meatballs

1 lb ground beef
1 egg
3-4 tbs grated Parmesan
2 tbs basil
1.5 tbs yogurt
Salt and pepper to taste.

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and divide into 24 meatballs. Fry meatballs until brown on all sides.

I added a low carb tomato sauce and some extra basil and Parmesan to finish it off.
